We present a rare case of granulocytic sarcoma (chloroma) in the lateral neck as an initial manifestation of acute leukemia in a 37-year-old man. The lesion appeared as a solid mass with homogenous contrast enhancement on CT. Recognition of this rare entity is important, because early, aggressive induction chemotherapy can improve prognosis.
